Best film!
12 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Lingaa was very nice!!I really enjoyed every minute of it.It has everything portrayed very nicely:Action,Romance,Comedy,Sentiments.Best movie!Everyone's roles are nice,everyone's acting is good.The story is very different and nice and if you think that you can guess the story from the trailer,you are wrong.The story is totally different from what i had expected.The only thing i didn't really like is the editing.The editing was not up to the mark only at some parts,but it could have been much better.Very nice cinematography and direction!I had always liked Rajini and K.S.Ravikumar combo,but they were old movies,but this one was the new and modern version of the combo,and it was really nice.I don't mind going for another 5 shows and spending my cash because the movie is just so nice!I recommend every Indian to watch Lingaa!Im impressed!
